I am a Computer Science Ph.D. candidate in the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University. I work in the assistive & rehabilitation robotics laboratory at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC). My research focuses on the development and applications of artificial intelligence, computer vision and machine learning methods to benefit human-centered robotics and assistive technologies. I am working with my advisor Prof. Brenna Argall on adaptive shared autonomy to enable users with unique needs and preferences to perform activities of daily living tasks on their own by using assistive robots.
